SATC 2. It wasn’t all bad.

SATC 2. It wasn’t all bad.

There have been thousands, maybe even tens of thousands, of unkind words written about the second Sex and the City film. And let’s face it, they’re mostly justified. Even the biggest SATC fan (over here, guys) had to admit with a miserable shrug that SATC2...
London: a love letter

London: a love letter

It happened. So help me, it happened. I appear to have moved to Devon by mistake. Just twelve short months after I had what I thought was a speculative discussion about packing up our lives in London and moving to the depths of the countryside, we have taken the final...
Cluster Cluck

Cluster Cluck

When it comes to bridesmaid careers, there are few to rival mine for sheer variety. Lucky Number Ten (I’ve clocked up NINE turns on this rodeo) is scheduled for next July – a month after my own nuptials – at the wedding of two of my favourite people, Liz and...
Vital Organs

Vital Organs

Greeting and salutations from the trenches of Weddingsville. Population: me. As I tap out this blog with the last on my strength at 3am this Sunday evening, I have no fewer than 24 tabs open on my laptop browser. Some pertain to work, some to my social life (did you...

Birthday Blues

Birthday Blues

I’ve heard an ugly rumour lately. And it goes something like this: “Feminism. It was a bit of a fad really, wasn’t it? Everyone hopped on the bandwagon but is bored of it now.” “We don’t NEED feminism anymore. Everything’s better now.” “International Women’s Day. Huh,...
London Bridge is falling down

London Bridge is falling down

London Bridge has changed. It has quite possibly been changed for some time, it’s just that I haven’t been anywhere near it for a while (all my recent clients have been more central, so it’s been ages since I stood in the Mount Doom-esque shadow of The Shard). But...
IT’S NOT A THING

IT’S NOT A THING

I have always, like most normal people, been completely disgusted by Valentine’s Day. It’s a big ol’ corporate trick (that we fall for every single year) to get us to spend even MORE money we don’t have on shit we most certainly do not need. Seriously, when was the...
